Alba's story

Alba, age 38, is a single mother. She has two daughters, ages 18 and 3. The older is in her first year of studies to obtain a degree in Agronomy, while the younger is still very small. Her dream is that her daughter would finish her studies and can be useful in the future.

Alba has worked as a street vendor of all types of merchandise for 9 years. She worked several years abroad in order to build her house, and upon her return she was able to grow her business.

She seeks a loan for the purchase of men’s and women’s jeans, leggings, sneakers, blouses, capris, underwear, and other items that will allow her to offer variety to her customers.
